Kat has always been a good girl. She studies hard and never stays out too late. But when sitting in a pub on her birthday, she realizes she's a nineteen-year-old virgin who's never really lived. And she wants tonight to be the night that changes.

Then she sees him walk in. He's tall, dark, handsome, and straight out of her deepest fantasies. His voice makes her knees feel weak, and when he smiles, she imagines him doing wicked things to her in bed. From the look in his eyes, she knows he's imagining it too. So when he asks if he can walk her home, she hears herself whisper yes . . .

I received this book for free from NetGalley, Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

My Review

Forbidden is the first book in the British Stepbrother Series by Lauren Smith. It is taboo times two. 

Kat Roberts is the virtuous all-American girl who has just moved to Cambridge to attend the university. She has decided it’s time to break  out of her shell and experience life. Tristan Kingsley is larger-than-life. He has good lucks, a scrumptious mouth, and has just discovered the most delectable treat in Kat Roberts. Having met by pure coincidence, we are afforded the opportunity to watch as their worlds collide in so many ways, leaving a trail of passion in its wake. 

Written in third person point of view, Forbidden was a unique storyline in the taboo, step-sibling sub-genre. It was a fast and enjoyable read that gave greater insight into Kat and Tristan’s present and past lives. Their personalities were endearing. During some points in the story, I did feel as though it was almost too surreal. However, the overall premise held my attention, and I have a burning need to find out what the future holds for Kat and Tristan.
